The time machine that is The Goldbergs is such a freakin’ joy. Every week they manage to give us the feels with their storytelling about the 80s. The resemblance that the show has to almost everybody’s life is what makes it worth watching. We live in times of nostalgia, and looking back at the 80s seems to be more pleasant than ever.
This week Barry and Adam start a band in their garage. They suck, but they still want the fame and fortune. Needless to say, Bev is their biggest fan, which left grandpa to break her the news that the kids are actually terrible musicians.
Barry is still in love with Erica’s friend Laney. In a moment of nerves, Barry ended up inviting Erica and her friend to join the band. Adam is clearly pissed off, and it all ends up with a great battle of the bands. In the Goldbergs’ garage…
Bev in the meantime is too busy planning a second wedding. She wants to renew her vows, and it’s all thanks to the royal wedding. You know, the one with Diana, not the 2.0 copy from today.
She plans this huge event, and in the end is super disappointed by Murray’s lack of enthusiasm. His one job was to write his vows, and he of course used the words from the theme tune to ‘Family Ties’, yes, the TV show..
It was sad to see Bev upset. She is so crazy, she makes everything better, so seeing her truly pissed off and depressed made the whole family work together. In the end she was woken up in the middle of the night to a beautiful second wedding in her garden.
It’s the simple things that matter 🙂
